Big-hearted humanitarians at St Luke's recognised with special award

Harry Leach 25th Dec, 2020

HARD-WORKING pupils at St Luke’s First School have been recognised for their global citizenship work.

The humanitarians have been busy recycling, campaigning over climate change and donating food items to those in need.

Charity Christian Aid awarded the school ‘Bronze’ under its Global Neighbours Scheme for the children’s efforts.

The scheme celebrates schools which are helping pupils learn about global poverty and the Christian responsibility to tackle it; as well as giving them the tools to play a confident part in creating a fairer world.

Recycling bins have been placed all around St Luke’s and school staff only use disposable cups for their hot drinks.

Miss Grace Rogerson, Global Neighbours lead at the school, said: “We are thrilled to be recognised for the work we have done as a whole school community to raise awareness of the extreme inequalities across our globe.

“Our pupils learn about global issues regularly and gain an understanding of injustice in our world.”
